does it pain you
that no matter which way I am folded
i remain uncreased
some people won’t be able to handle half of what you endure.
some people won’t be able to handle that you endure it at all.
some people will wish that you endure more so that you break.
others will envy your will, your unwavering resolve.
smile, pray for them,
and remain the sun dried linen that doesn’t fold,
the fresh suds smell perfuming your seams,
wafting past their noses.
